Restless And Wild

The vinyl shopping spree continues at Moody Lords, as we move into the 80's.

There was a January Record A Day thing on Instagram last year, and for Day 1 the theme was "Best Opening Track", I ended up going with Screaming For Vengeance from Judas Priest, but that was only because I didn't own a vinyl copy of Accept's Restless And Wild. I remember hearing Fast As A Shark for the first time as a kid...starting with the German children's song...the screech of the needle across the record, Udo's scream, and then that ripping guitar riff. It melted my face. I'd never heard anything so vicious and fast.

Adding Restless And Wild to the collection completes my run of classic Accept records from Breaker through Metal Heart.
